About this title:

Geriatric Emergencies is a practical guide to the common conditions affecting older patients who present in an emergency to hospital or primary care.

Beginning with the essentials of history-taking and clinical examination, the book covers a comprehensive range of emergencies, emphasizing the different management approaches that may be required for older patients. Common geriatric presentations – such as falls, delirium and stroke – are explored in detail, in addition to more diverse topics such as abdominal pain, major trauma and head-injury. Ethical considerations, such as advanced care planning, palliative care and capacity assessment, are discussed with practical tips on communicating with patients and their relatives.

Geriatric Emergencies provides concise, up-to-date guidance to the emergency management of the older patient. It is a recommended resource for all health professionals working in the acute environment, in which a large proportion of patients are aged over 65.

Authors: Iona Murdoch, Sarah Turpin, Bree Johnston, Alasdair MacLullich, and Eve Losman
